ON HER STYLE PHILOSOPHY
“I like to dress like I’m on vacation. I love wide-leg pants, button-up shirts, leather sandals… Those are my go-tos. At night, I definitely dress up—but always with at least one casual element like flats or jeans. I’m not big on jewelry, but I have a soft spot for big hoop earrings.”
ON SOUVENIRS (THAT AREN’T SNOW GLOBES)
“I always try to find textiles and local crafts when I’m traveling—baskets, pottery, anything that’s made by the people in the area I’m visiting. Traveling is also a way to learn and grow. I feel like I’m learning in every place I visit, and I try to bring some of what I’ve learned back with me. Like in Morocco, where I took a cooking class to learn how to work with a tagine!”
ON WHERE YOU SHOULD GO NEXT
“Essaouira, Morocco, is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s so funky and chill. It’s like a Rasta beach town in the middle of North Africa. Port Antonio, Jamaica, is another one. There are waterfalls and lagoons and swimming holes everywhere—and some of the best fish you’ll ever eat. Hydra is my favorite Greek Island. You can only get around by walking or by donkey.”
ON HER DAY JOB
“I work for Ridley Scott’s production company. We do commercials, film and television. Getting to meet amazing directors and witness incredible collaborations never gets boring! It’s fun to play make-believe."
